The 'Craziest Man On Earth' - Best Headline Ever ...

.... however .... 

So while it’s easy for us Canadians to watch in horror as the NRA spouts nonsense, perhaps we should take note of the fact that the nonsense was carefully salted with phrases like “national media machine” and “the press and political class here in Washington.” That’s not accidental. The NRA is not even trying to fight reason with reason.

The sales job goes like this: Never mind what the elites say. Never mind the studies, the differences among countries that suggest policy might matter. There’s no way to prevent or reduce violence so the only answer is to arm the “good guys.” There are monsters out there. Buy a gun. And stick it to those people in Washington who don’t know anything about real life.
As Taylor said, it’s absurd. I hope, I really hope, that it’s one gamble too far for the NRA. Maybe there is a limit to what somebody can sell in populist packaging. I hope reason will prevail.
But I fear that the NRA knows exactly what it’s doing.
